Now is not the time to talk about the match. Sean Cav you are a legend. A genuine bona fide legend. I felt for you today. You did not deserve that. Thanks for the memories. Love from Dublin. Good luck.

wasn't impressed with harte taking off Cavanagh even he wasn't his usual self but there were younger players who let the side down big time, like McClure missed 3 sitters mc carron also should have left him on and moved him in closer, not nice from harte to end seans outstanding service, the man owes no one in tyrone anything or even the gaa as a great ambassador of the sport.

Legend is right. Certainly won't miss him playing against Donegal but was a pleasure to see him play in the flesh many times. Happy retirement and congrats on a fantastic career.

farewell to one of the very best I've seen. Nice to see his opponents wish him well at the end there.

Very best wishes to Sean on his retirement. He lit up so many games. 2008 All-Ireland v Kerry comes to mind especially.

What a legend, hope he goes into punditry or managing now.

Legend!

Won't forget the Seán Cavanagh shuffle any time soon!

Hard to watch him go out like that but he'll be remembered as one of the best there ever was.

Always said if there was a transfer market that man in his pomp would have been the first player Id have gone for.

Sport is so cruel for the lucky few that get their fairytale send off, Alan Brogan, Brian O'Driscoll spring to mind, there are so many that end it in disappointment. ROG, Gooch and Sean etc know all about it.

An excellent servant who delivered on most of the big days. I would have loved to see him play on a team with more of an attacking focus to see how good he could have been in a traditional system, I think he would have really shone.

Best player I've ever seen. Class act. Tyrone and the GAA have seen a great leave the stage today. Best of luck to you Séan.

Always said he was the best player to ever come out of Tyrone IMO.

For a county that produced Peter Canavan, that is as high a praise as I can give the man.

Ulster titles
All ireland titles
Footballer of the year
Captained his county and his country

One of the all time greats

Happy retirement Sean.

Super footballer but had waned a good bit in recent years. He hasn't really been top notch for a good 4/5 years if truth be told.

very few of his team mates today stood up to be counted when it mattered or did anything to make what was possibly his last game at least a contest. lucky to be getting away if that's the crap tyrone are going to persist with, though I doubt the new management would continue with something that was shown up today for what it is, bs at least in a semi final you should be looking for ball not standing waiting on the opposition to make a mistake or give you a ball so you can break free

Happy retirement to Sean Cavanagh if that's what happens.Mickey Harte has been a great Manager for Tyrone winning three All-Irelands but he's there for too long and a change is needed.

Absolutely. A legend, a warrior and my favourite ever Tyrone player. I would have taken him onto any Dublin team at any stage. Enjoy the well deserved retirement Seany.

A fine player who probably should have resisted the appeals to give it 'one more year'.
